Gary Colman

Geordie comedian Gary Colman burst onto the comedy scene in 2009 as a finalist in 3 national comedy awards; New Act of the Year, Jongleurs’ New Comedian of The Year and Soho Theatres Future of TV Comedy. His first show at the Edinburgh Festival, a cute heart-warming comedy about the disembowelling banality of family life was a sell-out success and brought 5-star reviews.   

 

Over the years Gary has thrilled audiences with his unique style of high-energy dead-pan comedy. His style of joyful misery, described by Frank Skinner as highly inventive...very funny,  has won him many fans.

Gary performs at all the major comedy clubs and festivals, in theatres, rooms above pubs, and a cow-shed (once).

He is a popular MC and is the current resident MC of  both Electric Mouse Comedy and the legendary Fortnight Comedy Club where he has introduced audiences to the brand-new material of Alan Carr, Jack Whitehall, Josh Widdecombe, Sara Pascoe, Milton Jones, Zoe Lyons and Rob Beckett amongst others.
